Your air conditioner works around the clock to keep indoor temperatures stable. But occasionally things don’t work like they’re supposed to and ice collects in or around your cooling system. This might damage delicate components or even stop your AC system from running.
If you’ve discovered ice on your air conditioner, it’s a wise idea to contact our cooling Experts at . Our repair techs are the best name in service when it comes to air conditioning repair in the U.S..
While there are lots of reasons ice may collect in or around your air conditioner, the most frequent culprit is a lack of preventive service. Taking small steps to keep your air conditioner in good condition will go a long way in combating the formation of ice.
Some of these routine tasks include the following:
If your air filter is dirty or clogged, air struggles to move over the evaporator coil, which is a central step in the cooling process. This affects refrigerant inside the coil and collects extra moisture, which turns to ice. We suggest reviewing your filter once a month and replacing it when you can’t see light through it.
Even if you replace your air filter consistently, a dirty coil may also ice over. Service Experts Heating, Air Conditioning & Plumbing experts will thoroughly clean the evaporator coil as part of our exhaustive maintenance process. We advise requesting air conditioning maintenance every year to keep your coil clean and to minimize the chance of breakdowns.
Without enough refrigerant, the evaporator coil can’t hold as much heat and could ice up. As a result, your home will be hotter and less comfortable. The most likely source of reduced refrigerant is a leak. Our Experts are well-versed in identifying these leaks and getting your air conditioner at the required refrigerant level.
Bad wiring will affect the blower motor. Without constant airflow, the temperature could drop, and ice will form. Certified HVAC technicians like the ones at Service Experts Heating, Air Conditioning & Plumbing will inspect all electrical components during routine maintenance to ensure nothing is wrong. Bad wiring will be exchanged as necessary.
Service Experts Heating, Air Conditioning & Plumbing provides comprehensive maintenance membership packages to boost your air conditioner’s effectiveness. With routine service visits, the risk for critical problems is greatly reduced.
Sometimes ice on your air conditioner is pointing to a larger problem. No air conditioner lives forever. And if you have an older one that runs on R-22 refrigerant, you’ll be out of luck if you need more refrigerant, since it’s no longer being made.
